We show that, owing to a decrease in the dipolar energy, the soft cores of the nonsingular, doubly quantized vortices in 3HeA2 expand and become ellipsoidal upon approaching the A1 phase. Results of zero sound experiments in rotating 3HeA2, very near the A2A1 transition, support this conclusion. The experimental data was analyzed by a geometrical acoustics method, using theoretically calculated attenuation and velocity parameters.
